1. Guitar chords are given.but the title says it's for ukulele.
2. It's a Dadd4/add2 not a D. This chord is comprised of D, E, F#, G.

On uke this is:

A-5 (D)
E-2 (F#)
C-4 (E)
G-0 (G)

It's always annoying when people put chords up and then clearly get bored halfway through. Why just write 'verse' for the second verse? If we knew the song by heart, we wouldn't be following it on UG.
